DVSA Information about rebooking your pupils test

Inviting candidates to rebook their driving test

We recently told you that we'd contact critical workers and practical car test candidates in England whose tests were put on hold due to coronavirus to ask them to choose a new test date and time.

We will send emails out:

  • on 15 July to critical workers in England, Scotland and Wales who had a test booked during lockdown
  • from 16 July to candidates in England whose practical car test was put on hold due to lockdown

Both emails will include a link to book a new test date as the candidate booking system remains closed.
This link will only work for people who have been invited to rebook their test.

When we email candidates whose tests were put on hold due to lockdown, we'll initially invite around 10,000 each day, split in batches to spread out demand on the service.
All available appointments will be shown on the online service. Do not contact our customer service centre as they will not be able to book any alternative test slots.

Making sure your pupils are ready

It's important that you speak to your pupils before they rebook their tests to make sure:

  • they are ready to take their test
  • you are available to take them

As examiners will only be at test centres when they have a test booked, we have increased the minimum notice period for booking a test from 60 minutes to 10 hours.

Wearing a face covering

All candidates must wear a face covering when taking their driving test, unless they have a good reason not to. This includes if:

  • they have a physical or mental illness or impairment, or a disability that means they cannot put on, wear or remove a face covering
  • putting on, wearing or removing a face covering would cause them severe distress

When they arrange their test, they’ll need to say if there’s a good reason they cannot wear a face covering. The email will tell them how to do this.

Mike's Driving Lessons
Driving Lesson procedures from 6th July Onwards:

Before the Lesson:

You may notice me get to our starting location early to disinfect the car after I have driven it there.
Before you get in the car to start your lesson, I will ask you to confirm that:

  • You do not have a high temperature.
  • No one in your household has any symptoms.
  • You are willing to taking part in the NHS Test and Trace initiative.
  • You are willing to wear a face covering. These must be on BEFORE entering the car.
  • You are willing to use Anti-Bacterial Hand gel..

During the lesson:

  • You will not be able to bring any food or drink with you. All personal belongings must be kept on your person (i.e. pockets) rather than placed in the center console.
  • If you feel unwell at any point during the lesson you MUST inform me and the lesson will be aborted.
  • If we need to have a lengthy discussion regarding any part of the lesson, we will exit the car and do this in the fresh air outside. Please wear appropriate clothing for the weather conditions.
  • During the lesson we may have a ‘clean down’ at the midpoint where you will be able to exit the car for refreshments and to remove your mask if you wish.

At the end of the lesson:

  • Please do not remove your mask until you are outside of the car and at least 2 metres away. The car will then be cleaned thoroughly before I drive to the next lesson.
  • Please fill in your reflective logs once you are home. This is to minimise sharing of any pens or clipboards.

Breaking news! Lessons to resume!

Your lessons will look slightly different when we return, in order to keep both pupils and instructors safe after the pandemic.
Have a look at our Covid policy here:
http://www.mikesdrivinglessons.co.uk/.../coronavirus-policy-2...

Learners with test disruptions - Your test could come sooner than you realise, and it's key to get you back into the car and back up to speed after the lockdown period (Even i'm rusty at driving after a 3 month break!) The backlog of tests is absolutely massive as you would expect, so failing your test will put you to the back of an already long queue. When rebooking your test slot, give yourself enough time to fit in enough lessons to get back up to speed and become the best driver you can be, get it done first time and go enjoy that freedom!
I will be in contact with you in terms of dates/times of these rebooked tests so don't worry, I will be in touch.

Current learners - Much of your day to day life may have changed, perhaps you're not in college every day now, or working different days/hours compared to what you were before the lockdown. I will be in touch with you all individually to ensure you get a slot for lessons that is either the same as before lockdown, or suits your current situation. Again, dont worry, I will be in touch.

New learners - With the DVSA shutting down pretty much everything since March, this has had a massive effect on our students passing their tests, and creating availability for you. Rest assured you have not been forgotton and we will be in touch as soon as a space opens for you. We thank you for your patience during this strange time!

If you have any questions on anything at all regarding getting back behind the wheel, please don't hesitate to message the page

See you all soon!
Mike

In the House of Commons today.

Greg Smith MP - Buckingham

With the good news this week that further parts of our economy can re-open from 4th July, a particular sector left wondering when they can return to work are driving instructors.

I have been contacted by a number of instructors in the constituency, such as Tom Matthews of Viking school of motoring in Buckingham, setting out comprehensive measures he has taken to be Covid-secure and reporting a long queue of customers wanting him to teach them to drive.

Whilst it is right the economy is re-opened cautiously and following the science, this morning I called on the government to ensure statements are made to the House of Commons as soon as possible to give the thousands of driving instructors in our country the guidance they need to understand when and how they may be able to return to work too.

The Leader of the House of Commons (Mr Jacob Rees-Mogg) replied:

I am grateful to my hon. Friend for his question. Driving instructors are one of the unseen engines of the country. They train future generations of drivers, and I hope they can resume their important work safely as soon as possible.

The Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency chief executive will be writing to all approved driving instructors on 25 June, setting out plans to restart driver testing and to help them to return to a life that is as close to normal as possible, as quickly and as fairly as possible, in a way that avoids a second peak of infections.

From 4 July, I am happy to say that people will be able to take driving lessons on a motorcycle, or in a car, lorry or bus, and there will be a phased approach to resuming practical testing, so learners have the opportunity to practise before taking a test. But he can raise this with the Secretary of State for Transport on 2 July.

Coronavirus

Morning all students.

This is really a message I don't want to type, but it is with great regret that due the ongoing Coronavirus situation that Driving Lessons this week will be postponed.

I will be monitoring the situation weekly, and hope to get you all back behind the wheel ASAP.

Those with Theory or Practical test bookings are currently being reviewed by the DVSA. You should receive an email in due course as things smoothen out. As usual, any worries feel free to give me a call.

I will be ringing everyone individually to Rebook lessons, so if I miss your call I'll ring you as soon as I can!

Most importantly, stay safe over this next week. Wash your hands and keep social distancing, and hopefully normal service will resume in next to no time.

Thank you for your understanding and I'll see you all again soon to get those tests passed

coronovirus epidemic

Coronavirus

Myself and the team behind Mike's Driving Lessons would like to say a huge 'thank you' to all of our students, present and future that are following the guidelines about staying safe during this difficult time.

As you can imagine this is a very worrying time for the self-employed and we are incredibly grateful for all your support at this time by continuing with your lessons. Thank you.

We know there will be a Massive demand for Lessons and Driving Tests once the coronavirus outbreak is over, so by continuing with your lessons now it will mean that you will be able to book the earliest possible driving tests when things return to normal and be driving much sooner compared to delaying your lessons and being hit with even more test waiting times.

Our cars are probably the cleanest place you can be right now, being meticulously sprayed over between each lesson.

I will give you as much notice as possible if I need to self isolate for any reason to minimise disruption to your learning.

For any of our students who are showing symptoms, or have come into contact with someone who has contracted the virus or has tested positive for the virus, then please let me know as soon as possible.

Although we would ask you to let us know as early as possible if you need to cancel, there will be no charge for cancelling your lessons at short notice because of the virus.

With that in mind, at this time, your reliability is hugely appreciated by all of us. If you can avoid cancelling your lessons for any other reason, then it would be very much appreciated.

If you have any concerns or questions about your lessons or test, please contact me directly and I'll be more than happy to help.

We hope you all stay safe and let’s hope life returns to normal very soon.

Thank you so much again for your continuing support
Let's hit the road!
